While taking Alex to MDO this morning, Amber asked us if we’d like to go to the Zoo’s Member appreciation night for the dinosaur exhibit. I called Wade and he said sure. Alex was obviously listening and asked about our plans. Then we got to talking about dinosaurs. I tried to explain that we would see pretend dinosaurs because all of the real ones died a long time ago. Obviously I didn’t do a good job of explaining. By the time we got to school, he had his lower lip out and tears in his eyes because the dinosaurs were all dead. I took him to his new class (for summer session) and he immediately went to the table that had dinosaurs on it. I gave his teachers a heads up about our conversation and told them “good luck”. His teachers did great! When I picked him up he was telling me all about the dinosaurs and how they aren’t alive anymore but there are bones.
